Declan Hobbs

On Tuesday August 16th my brother and his wife, Doug and Joanne, got the call that no parent should ever have to get. They were told that their son has Leukemia, and to rush him to the hospital immediately. They weren't sure if he was going to make it through the night.
They had taken him to the Doctor that day because he had bruises on his body that just wouldn't go away, as well as little red spots under his arms. At that second, their world was completely shattered.
He has been diagnosed with a rare aggressive sub type AML leukemia. He is fighting for his life and is having very intense CHEMO treatments.
Declan is 5 years old and will turn 6 this week in the hospital.
He is so weak already, and we're told he will get even more sick from the intense chemo treatments he was started in.  He will lose his hair this week, and will be going through pure hell.
The family is doing everything they possibly can to hold it all together. They have been by his side and are also trying to care for Declan's older sister Alexa who is 7. She is taking this very hard as you can imagine, and may be facing a terrifying ordeal of donating bone marrow to her brother.
This beautiful little family is absolutely devastated. Their world has been thrown upside down and they are doing everything they can to get through this.
As you can imagine, Doug and Joanne have missed and will miss a lot more work in order to be by their little boys side while he fights this painful and scary battle with cancer.
We're just asking for a little help for them, so they can continue to be with him until he heals. This will be a tough journey, but we have faith that he will be well, and we will not stop believing this!!
This is a very agressive cancer, and they need all the prayers and support they can get.
Anything you can do is so greatly appreciated.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
